What “In Your Shoes” Means to Me
"The expression 'In Your Shoes' to me means to empathize with the person—to experience reality and look at the world from their perspective. To understand their decision-making process and to determine the actions I would (need to) undertake I had experienced the same set of conditions. I first try to carefully consider and examine all of the potential "why" -s that majorly influence(d) the subject in question and their possible answers. Analyzing the correlations between the "what" -s and the "why" -s is the key step in establishing the relevant links and understanding the person and being 'in their shoes'."
